Vaginoplasty is a unique surgical technique created to tighten the internal vaginal muscles.
The ideal patient for a Vaginoplasty, also referred to as vaginal tightening, will be a woman who feels her vaginal canal is too loose, often as a result of stretching during childbirth or the aging process.
The outpatient surgery will take from one to two hours, depending on the patient’s needs.
General anesthesia or a local anesthetic with IV sedation may be used.
The Vaginoplasty begins with a small incision, located on the posterior (rear) floor of the vagina. Once the incision is made, a portion of the posterior vaginal wall is excised and the muscles are tightened.
Patients can expect their recovery after Vaginoplasty to last from 7 – 14 days.
Initially, there will be some soreness after the surgery, and light bleeding may occur during the first post-op day.
Bruising and mild swelling may also be present, although these side effects usually fade within one to two days.
Though many women are comfortable returning to work within 3 - 5 days following their Vaginoplasty, vigorous exercise and strenuous activity should be put off for 4 - 6 weeks.
Sexual intercourse should also be postponed till 6 weeks post op.
